My very first sight of the Stargazer Lily was just a few weeks ago, and of course I had to show you. I was amazed. It is a newer lily, developed only in the last part of the 20th century. Lilies were around in ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, and then appeared in biblical traditions. This plant is extremly toxic to cats, and can cause death. But strangely, it affects only cats and no other animal. Lilies symbolize purity, and are popular funeral flowers, because of the soul being restored to innocence and purity after death. It's a pure beauty.
"The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk..."
